    March Madness 2007 ** Discuss your feelings here **

    MARCH MADNESS 2007
    3rd annual Arena tournament

    Congrats to Ctranter for winning as second year in a row

    Round 1 Stocks | Images: A B C D
    Round 2 Stocks | Images: A B Tiebreaker
    Round 3 Stocks | Images: A
    Round 4 Stocks | Images: A
    Round 5 Stocks | Final images



    This is bracketed tournament in which each round players will be paired together and given the same stock image. Each person will then use this stock image somewhere in making an image of their own. Once submitted, Flashkit members will vote using a poll on a winner for each pairing who will advance to the next round. With each round the number of competitors is cut in half until there is just one person left who will be crowned winner!

    The idea for this comes from the American NCAA basketball championship tournament where the top 64 college teams compete in the same style bracketed tournament to determine the champion for that year. It is "march madness" because there is tons of games on TV the whole month, and many of them come down to the last seconds (or second, or tenth of a second!) and there are always underdogs that beat the higher seeded teams.



    PREVIOUS YEARS:
    2006 | Winner: ctranter
    2005 | Winner: ondraedan

    IMAGE RULES:
    • Some element of the stock image given must be used
    • Images must be 700px by 400px or 400px by 700px
    • Both players in a pairing start from same image
    • Rotation allowed


    VOTING:
    • All members are encouraged to vote
    • A multiple choice poll will allow you to vote for your favorite image from each of the individual match ups for each round. Due to the large number of people in this battle, there will have to be multiple threads with polls. Make sure you vote in each of them
    • DO NOT VOTE MORE THAN ONCE! We can detect if you try to vote multiple times and will ban anyone caught doing so
    • Do not try and "sell" your image. All images in the polls are anonymous but it will not be tolerated if you go around telling people to vote for your image.
    • Please feel free to PM me about any voting concerns you may have. We would prefer that you PM me or one of the other Arena moderators rather than post your complaints in the public thread

    Which makes it just wonderful wondering if you were picked from the higher or lower numbered slots
    March Madness is a gut check and a pride shot sometimes. So be prepared to be winded or very happy.

    Dri... I just realized that unless I somehow get my image done completely on Friday, I'm screwed for the turnaround. Any chance of me getting moved up?
    Sorry for the whining.
